Hello neosne,

welcome to the PluginCafe forums 🙂

Unfortunately I don't think, there is a way to achieve, what you are requesting. At first a plugin can influence its own dialogs only. And secondly I'm not aware of functions to influence the size.
Look at it from a user's perspective: You may have invested a lot of time in a layout, that fits your workflow and positions everything, where you need it. Now consider a plugin moving your GUI around and mixing things up... I for one would not like it.

Having this said and considering that you mention to have very little scripting skills on your own, I'd like to move this to "Plugin Requests" subforum. Perhaps somebody from the community has an idea, but I doubt it. Did you try to contact the Octane guys? After all they own the dialog, you want to resize.

And perhaps one last idea. There are tools which can influence windows system wide (e.g. watch for requesters to occur and press a certain button,...). These might be able to resize windows as well...

If you need Scripts that can 
- Start or Stop Programs
- resize/maximize or even hide (make invisible)  the Windows of any program, 
I can help you. As said above there are multiple tools who can do this. 
The tool i am using is the "Smart Package Robot" from:

There are multiple videos about it on youtube.

The advantage is that it can find any window, even if other programs fail due to multiple windows have the same description.

Besides managing windows, its fully scriptable, and it can also do mouse- and keyboard simulation,
 start and stop services, even install and uninstall programs without any user activity.

Its perfect for automated starting of Programs and ordering of windows.
If you have questions on that contact me.
